Avocado Chicken Tacos – $5 Dinner Challenge

Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On September 20, 2010 @ 5:10 pm In $5 Dinner Challenge,chicken,Dairy Free,Gluten Free,Recipes | 12 Comments

So I made these a few weeks ago…and I’m so sorry it took me so long to get them posted.  I used 2 of the smaller peppers from my garden, along with some of my cherry-like tomatoes.

And avocados. *swoon*

And I think these would be just as great with ground beef or ground turkey tacos.  Love the different flavor and texture that the avocado chunks brought to these tacos!

Ingredients

2 chicken breasts ($1.66)
1 heaping Tbsp homemade taco seasoning [5] ($.05)
1 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil ($.03)
2 small green/red peppers, seeded and diced from the garden
2 avocados ($2)
Handful lettuce ($.25)
Cherry tomatoes, quartered, from the garden
Taco Shells ($.69) Sale, store promo and e-coupon

Frozen corn ($.88)

Directions

1. Cut the chicken breasts into 1/4-1/2 inch cubes.  Toss in a mixing bowl with the taco seasoning [5].  You could certainly use cooked and shredded chicken [6] too.

2. In a medium skillet, saute the chicken pieces in oil with the diced peppers.

3. Cut the avocado [7] into 1/4-1/2 inch chunks and toss with the cooked chicken and peppers.  Place into the taco shells and top with lettuce, and tomatoes.  (Optional: Add shredded cheese and/or sour cream.)

4. Cook the frozen corn as directed on the package.

5. Serve Avocado Chicken Tacos with Corn.

Cost $5.56
